Training for clergy mentors will be Thursday, March 5 at Dwight UMC and Thursday, March 19 at Galesburg First UMC. Both sessions run 9 a.m. to noon.
Clergy Mentors work with Local Pastors who have not completed the Course of Study and Provisional Members. This support during the first few years of appointive ministry is essential for the formation of our pastors.
Clergy mentors are clergy in full connection, associate members, or full-time local pastors who have completed the Course of Study trained to provide ongoing oversight and counsel with local pastors and provisional members pursuing ordained ministry.
This is the same training that has been offered since 2015. You do not need to repeat it if you have completed training since 2015.
